Dadi Janki – 11.8.12 Evening – Q&A - GRC, European Teachers Retreat
Friendship, Trust and Love
Q: There has been a general feeling that we are now working as friends, not as business partners. Can you expand on that?
A: There is no such thing here as hierarchy, because there is fear in hierarchy and then there isn’t a feeling of belonging. You speak of the word friendly. I never use the word organization; we are a family, we are children of the one Father. If someone tries to say Namaste to me I shake their hand!
All the differences that are created due to color, creed, religion etc in the world don’t exist here. I just follow shrimat and therefore whatever words I speak are meaningful and sweet. The head stays cool, the heart happy. To have a simple nature means there is honesty within and sweetness in that. Then it is a friendship, not an ordinary friendship, it is a friendship created on the basis on the feeling of belonging to each other. The eyes of the world are opening and they are observing how you all work together, so you must all now wake up! In the world they all work for money or position only. Here the ones who don’t have any desire for money or position are the ones who will move forward.
Q: In the process of working together, how do we build trust?
A: I have spoken before about friendly love and motherly love. Many say they experience me to be like their mother. Subtly, if there is motherly love, just like Brahma Baba made souls belong to him, then with friendship there is equality and we make everyone belong to Baba. With motherly love we understand this is a home and we work with economy, so we create the atmosphere of the home with love. Motherly love melts the hearts of many souls. Many souls say they have not received the love of my mother because both mother and father go to work. He is our Mother, Father, Teacher and Friend.
If there isn’t friendliness, there is jealousy. On this path of knowledge we must remember our childhood, we are all children of the one Father. As students we just have one aim: to study together. However some have the sanskar of not being able to see others’ progress. Ask yourself: am I free of jealousy? Have the feeling that, just as I am taking from God, let everyone take from God as well. When we work together and all these subtle aspects end, there can be so much more spirituality in the gathering.
Whenever I see someone new, I always feel that we should sustain this soul. This means that we just need to create the company of those who can make them happy. When there is love amongst us, there is happiness. How do we share happiness? Just keep giving it out as we walk and move around. No matter what happens don’t become upset. Don’t become moody. The feeling of wanting to learn enables others to stay light with me. Nobody should have the thought: who are you to tell me this? Don’t create doubt or suspicion. Pure feelings and trust build integrity. By remaining a trustee, it is easy to remain soul conscious. It helps others remain soul conscious too. Dadi has kept so much trust in souls. Even if you don’t have trust in yourself, remember the trust Dadi has in you. So let me remain seated on my seat. Courage, trust and pure feelings (bhavna) - even if you don’t have a penny, keep these with you. Sometimes I didn’t have the money to travel and yet I sat on the train and someone gave me a ticket…
Q: The combination of clear knowledge and a powerful atmosphere pulls souls. Baba wants us to serve with our face and features. How do we create such an atmosphere?
A: Dadi has so much love for all of you. It is very necessary to spread love. Take from Baba and realise that He is the Ocean of Love and we are thirsty for that love. Even if the souls of the world get a drop of that love, they feel so happy. The heart then can accept these simple teachings. Don’t remain dry. Some teachers don’t even smile at anyone all day! So do you have motherly love or friendly love? Create the right to receive love.
We don’t want anyone who just gives orders here. Do everything with love. Don’t avoid or ignore anything. So it is time to sacrifice everything impure! Now finish all the weaknesses that remain.

Draw love from Baba
What does Baba do that He is loved so much? God transforms the intellect of souls and that is why He is loved. Baba makes us karmateet and complete with all wealth. However, when there is doubt in the intellect then the soul cannot receive anything. When there is faith, victory is guaranteed. Dadi feels that it is through faith that she has gained victory. She says this with great intoxication! I need to have faith and to be faithful. One who has faith feels that everything good will happen – it is guaranteed.
Everything that Baba has is available to me. All treasures, all virtues are mine. The soul becomes happy when it emerges virtues. Baba gives the return of the bhavna a soul has for Him… the feelings a soul has for Him.
When a soul remains a trustee then Baba gives the fruit of making that soul bodiless. Then the soul doesn’t have the burden of the task on his or her head. He or she does not doubt then if something will happen or not – it is as if it has already happened – as if it is guaranteed.
Baba has taught us – made us as we are… shown us how to have give and take accurately. How much happiness can a human being give? If you want to take enough to fill you for all time, if you want to take the complete stock of happiness that is available, then take from God. The fruit of actions and the power that comes through yoga fills the soul. However, this is the work each one has to do for the self. If I remember anyone except for Baba then there won’t be strength. If there isn’t remembrance whilst performing actions the soul cannot receive the full fruit. It doesn’t matter how much you may work, if there isn’t remembrance, you cannot receive the full fruit. The soul then gets tired and when you get tired that old nature you may have thought you had left behind begins to emerge.
When there is less remembrance then we cannot get on with each other with love. When someone has true and deep remembrance, others feel him/her to be very loving. Where has Dadi received love from? From Baba. Dadi has received an abundance of love from Baba. And my feeling is for each one of you to take that much love so that you sing the song, ‘Who can give as much love as I have received’? Even in the family, each one takes love from Baba and thanks Baba for that.Baba’s love is of such a quality that it makes one detached like a lotus. Baba’s love makes one detached from the body and only then can the soul be completely loving, because only when a soul is detached can it be up above with Baba.
If you want to receive Baba’s love then take the blessings of the Mother and Father so that the burden of sins can be removed from your head. The things of the past can be finished when we take the blessings and love of the Mother and Father. If it were not for the blessings from Baba where would we all be? The more we do service, the more our health, wealth and happiness increase. In fact, it is not a matter of giving but of sowing the seeds of your future fortune. This is why in the Yagya we never say ‘donation’. It is a matter of sowing seeds in an incognito way. This is why we don’t mention names. We receive the fruit of those seeds now and in the golden age. Thus, to the extent you serve with body, mind and wealth, you feel the return coming to you. The return Baba gives for remembrance is different from the return for service. The return for the work we do in unity is also different.
Baba is enabling us to create our fortune. We receive Baba’s sustenance. When we serve through our body, mind and wealth, we receive all types of help from Baba.
